Lahore: A newly-launched private television channel has employed a Sikh woman as news reporter for the first time in the history of Pakistan. Manmeet Kaur, who is a resident of Peshawar city, joined Hum News recently. She completed her masters in social sciences from Peshawar University. She has four siblings. She will be seen reporting on the issues of human rights, minorities, local communities and non-governmental organizations. Talking to reporters in Lahore, the 24-year-old said although the media is not her field, she accepted the job to prove herself. “In our country (Pakistan), most of the Sikh girls prefer to sit at home after completing their formal education,” Kaur said while urging her community to step into the practical field.
